Drive by La Fourchette, and you might just miss it. Tucked on a side street in Buckhead (some say it’s the newest up-and-coming culinary destination, but the verdict’s still out), La Fourchette's strip mall surroundings make it seem hardly a must-stop restaurant. But you’d be remiss to miss out on the talents of Chef Jeffrey Wall, and talents he has aplenty. Not only does Wall command an inviting savory menu at this Italian-American restaurant, he does a pretty decent job with the desserts, hand-churning his ice creams the old fashioned way (yep, with a bucket of ice) to make some of the creamiest we’ve had. Although the restaurant could use a face lift (the interior resembles a corporate mall joint), Wall’s cuisine is worth fighting the traffic-heavy Buckhead highways.
